CLOUD 9

( Harrison)

Have my love
It fits you like a glove
Join my dream, tell me yes
Bail out should there be a mess
The pieces you don't need are mine

Take my time
I'll show you cloud nine
Take my smile and my heart
They were yours from the start
The pieces to omit are mine

Have my love
Use it while it does you good
Share my highs but the times that he hurts pay no mind
This pieces you don't need are mine
I'll see you there on cloud nine

Take my hope
Maybe even share a joke
If there's good to be shown
You may make it all your own
But if you want to quit that's fine
While you're out looking for cloud nine

THAT'S WHAT IT TAKES

(Harrison)

And now it begins to shine
And you found the eyes to see
Each little drop withdrawn out every day
Your smiling comes back to me
And what ever you may say
Don't let it stop
Never fade away

As we gotta get out in this world together
Then we might as well stop to make some changes

If that's what it takes
Then I gotta be strong
Don't wanna be wrong
If that's what it takes
The closer I get into that open door
I gotta be sure if that's what it takes

And now that it's shining through
And you can see all this world
Don't let it stop
Never fade away

If we gotta be in this life forever
Then we gotta be taking all the chances

If that's what it takes
Then I gotta be strong
Don't wanna be wrong
If that's what it takes
The closer I get into that open door
I gotta be sure if that's what it takes

FISH ON THE SAND

(Harrison)

I know you're in the sun
I know you're close to everyone
At times it's like you don't have a hold on me

I see you in love
I see you in the moon above
But I wanna know that you're not lost inside of me

You know I need you
You know I love you
If I'm not with you I'm not so much of a man
I'm like a fish on the sand

You call me in the night
And hide behind the day light
And blowing like the wind you don't let me see

You know I feel the pain
I'm tired of playing games with you
Though there's nothing else at once that will set me free
You know I love you
You know I need you
If I can't be with you I'm not so much of a man
I'm a fish on the sand

No use to no one else, they've all dried up
Watching all our lives go by
I can't believe you wanna see me crying

I hold you in my heart
I know that you're a part of me
But it's a must to know that you love me too

I look you in the eye
Your swimming by my tear drops
But I wanna know for sure that you'll let me see

You know I want you
You know I need you
If I'm not with you I'm not so much of a man
I'm like a fish on the sand

You know I need you
You know I love you
If I'm not with you I'm not so much of a man
I'm a fish on the sand
Not so much of a man
More a fish on the sand

JUST FOR TODAY

(Harrison)

Just for today I could try to live through this day only
Not deal with all life's problems
Just for today.
If just for one night I could feel not sad and lonely.
Not be my own life's problem just for one night
If just today I could try to live through this day only.
Not deal with all life's problems, just for today.

If just for one night
I could feel not sad and lonely
Not be my own life's problem
just for one night
Just for today
I could try to live through this day only
Not deal with all life's problems
just for today
Just for today

THIS IS LOVE

(Harrison)

Precious words drift away from the meaning
And the sun melts the chill from our lives
Helping us all to remember what we came here for
This is love
This is lo, lo, lo, love
This is love, this is lo, lo, lo, love

Little things that will change you forever
May appear from way out of the blue
Making fools of everybody
Who don't understand
This is love
This is lo, lo, lo, love
This is love, this is lo, lo, lo, love

Since our problems have been our own creation
They also can be overcome
When we use the path provided free to everyone
This is love
This is lo, lo, lo, love
This is love, this is lo, lo, lo, love

This is love
This is lo, lo, lo, love
This is love, this is lo, lo, lo, love

WHEN WE WAS FAB

(George Harrison and Jeff Lynne)

Back then long time ago when grass was green
Woke up in a daze
Arrived like strangers in the night
Fab - long time ago when we was fab
Fab - back when income tax was all we had

Caressers fleeced you in the morning light
Casualties at dawn
And we did it all!
Fab - long time ago when we was fab
Fab - you're my world you are my only love

And while you're in this world
The fuzz gonna come and claim you
But you mo better wise
When the buzz gonna come and take you away
Take you away Take you away

The microscopes that magnified the tears
Studied warts and all
Still the life flowed on and on
Fab - long time ago when we was fab
Fab - but it's All Over Now Baby Blue
Fab - long time ago when we was fab
Fab - like this pullover you sent to me
Fab - and You've Really Got A Hold On Me
Fab - long time ago when we was fab

DEVIL'S RADIO

(Harrison)

Gossip, gossip, gossip, gossip
I heard it in the night
Words the thoughtless speak
Like vultures swhooping down below on the
devil's radio

I hear it through the day
Airwaves getting filled
With gossip broadcast to and fro on the
devil's radio

Oh yeah, gossip, gossip, oh yeah

He's in the clubs and bars
And never turns it down
Talking about what he don't know on the
devil's radio

He's in your T.V. set
Won't give it a rest
That so betrayed so and so the devil's radio

Gossip, gossip, gossip, gossip
Oh yeah, gossip, gossip, oh yeah

It's white and black like industrial waste Pollution on the highest degree
You wonder why I don't hang out much
I wonder how you can see

He's in the films and songs
And at all your magazines
It's everywhere that you may go the devil's radio

Oh yeah, gossip, gossip, oh yeah

Runs thick and fast no one really sees
Quite what bad it can do As it shapes you into something cold like an eskimo igloo

It's all across our lives
Like weed it spreads
Till nothing else has space to grow the devil's radio

Can creep up in the dark
Make us hide behind shades
And buzzing like a dynamo the devil's radio

Gossip, gossip, gossip, gossip

SOMEPLACE ELSE

(Harrison)

You got into my life
I don't know how you found me
But you did
It stopped me heading someplace else

Took me a while to say
Wish you belong to me
But now I'm saddened like I never been
Regretting that we'll leave

And for a while you could comfort me
and hold me for some time
I need you now to be beside me
while all my world is so untidy
Loneliness, empty faces
Wish I could leave them all in some place else

I hope you won't let go
Maybe you let me know
That you'll be saddened like you never been
Regretting that we'll leave

And for a while I could comfort you
and hold you in my mind
I need you now to be beside me
while all my world is sad and crazy

Loneliness, empty faces,
Wish I could leave them all in some place else

And for a while you could comfort me
and hold me for some time
I need you now to be beside me
while all my world is so untidy

Loneliness, empty faces
Wish I could leave them all in some place else
Loneliness, empty faces,
Wish I could leave them all in some place else

I think I'm gonna leave them all in some place else

WRECK OF THE HESPERUS

(Harrison)

I'm not the wreck of the Hesperus
Feel more like the Wall of China
Getting old as Methuselah
Feel tall as the Eiffel Tower

I'm not a power or attorney
But I can rock as good as Gibraltar
Ain't no more no spring chicken
Been plucked but I'm still kicking
But it's alright, it's alright

Poison penmen sneak, have no nerve to speak
Make up lies then they leak 'm out
Behind a pseudonym, the rottenness in them
Reaching out trying to touch me

Met some Oscars and Tonys
I slipped on a pavement oyster
Met a snake climbing ladders
Got out of the line of fire
(But it's alright)

Brainless writers gossip nonsenses
To others heads dense as they is
It's the same old malady
What they see is faulty

I'm not the wreck of the Hesperus
Feel more like Big Bill Broonzy
Getting old as my mother
But I tell you I got some company
(But it's alright)

But it's alright, it's alright
But it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, alright
It's alright

BREATH AWAY FROM HEAVEN

(Harrison)

In another life
I woke up dreaming with a sigh
As the morning light
Was painting whispers of a joy

And I was in the candlelit bedroom
Enchanting beauty shimmering magically
Like an irridescent cloud
Being blown by a westerly wind

She can move your soul without you knowing
She can take your breath away from heaven

And I was captured by her loneliness
A wounded tiger on a willowy path
Like an opalescent moon all alone
In the sky of a foreign land

She can take your breath away from heaven
She can move your soul without you knowing
She can take your breath away from heaven
She is like an everlasting blossom
She can take your breath away from heaven

GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU

(Rudy Clark)

I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you

But it's gonna take money
A whole lotta spending money
It's gonna take plenty of money
To do it right, child
It's gonna take time
A whole lot of precious time
It's gonna take patience and time
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it,
To do it, to do it right child
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you

And this time I know it's real
The feelings that I feel
I know if you put my mind to it
I know that I really can do it
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you

But it's gonna take money
A whole lotta spending money
It's gonna take plenty of money
To do it right, child
It's gonna take time
A whole lot of precious time
It's gonna take patience and time
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it,
To do it, to do it right child

I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you

And this time I know it's real
The feelings that I feel
I know if I put my mind to it
I know that I really can do it
But it's gonna take money
A whole lotta spending money
It's gonna take plenty of money
To do it right, child
It's gonna take time
A whole lot of precious time
It's gonna take patience and time
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it,
To do it, to do it right child

Set on you, set on you
